Speaking Of The Law!
Posted March 26, 2002 - 04:59 AM
Not Enter" groups have had a long head start on us.
But on February 27, H.R. 3808 - Consistent Public Land Laws Enforcement Act
of 2002, was introduced in the House of Representatives by Representative
Scott McInnis of Colorado. This legislation proposes a reasonable
alternative to land closures - enhanced enforcement tools for the three
Federal agencies with the most responsibility for managing our public lands
and increased penalties for those who break the law.
This legislation is already gaining support on Capitol Hill. But your help
is urgently needed! Your Member of Congress needs to hear from you. Your
Member of Congress needs to know that there are other voices out there
besides "Do Not Enter".
Americans for Responsible Recreational Access (ARRA) supports H.R. 3808 as
an important step in bringing some balance to the public lands debate and
we hope you agree. Please use the Next button to send a letter to your
Member of Congress today, right now, and ask your Representative to
co-sponsor H.R. 3808.

I've sent in a few letters to voice my thoughts about closing trails, etc. I get extremely pissed off when I trail ride and see trash all over the place.
Are we fighting a hopeless battle here?
Can someone explain in simple terms what some of the simple steps we can all do to keep our rights to ride in place?

TO ALL, PLEASE HELP IN THIS FIGHT. IT IS A DIFFERENT GAME WE ARE PLAYING NOW. WE MUST ACT OR LOSE IT ALL.
If you have already helped, thanks for your support.

They did mention that there are few areas to ride leagally and most are far away (Livermore/Carnegie and Hollister) I think that to help these problems we need Motorcycle Dealers to inform buyers about illeagle riding and hand out info about how to help keep trails open and riding areas open. I have never been told anything about local riding areas or any otherinfo about AMA, Blueribbon Coalition when purchasing orr road vehicles. Ltes hope we can turn things around and inform more people.
Ride Safe, Ride Often and Have Fun
PS Paul Are we finally gone meet and ride this year.

Any chance of organizing a West Coast TT conference. Some middle location that is equal travel distance for the most remote members. I'm in Phoenix, Az.
And by conference I mean ride until the wheels fall off...
